Skip to comments.Voters in Red states w/ shaky Sen. Dems: Confirm Trump pick
Posted on 07/11/2018 8:46:28 AM PDT by 11th_VA
A new poll shows that voters in battleground states represented by vulnerable Senate Democrats decisively want President Donald Trumps nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, to replace Anthony Kennedy in the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS)...
The poll conducted by the Tarrance Group between July 5 and 8 revealed that voters agree by a decisive margin of at least 12 percent that their senators should confirm the SCOTUS appointment Trump announced Monday night. After explaining that the U.S. Senate will vote on the presidents appointment to replace Justice Kennedy, it asked voters, Do you think Senator [Nelson, Donnelly, McCaskill, Heitkamp, or Manchin: depending on the state] should vote to confirm President Trumps appointment to the Supreme Court?
And heres what voters from the five Senate battleground states said:
Florida 56 percent yes, 44 percent no
Indiana 56 percent yes, 44 percent no
Missouri 57 percent yes, 43 percent no
North Dakota 68 percent yes, 32 percent no
West Virginia 59 percent yes, 41 percent no
This advice to confirm Trumps SCOTUS nominee goes across demographic lines from gender to political preference.
While there is a gender gap, women across all five states remain at 53 percent yes, while fully 65 percent of men agree, the Tarrance Groups T.J. Martino explained in the poll results. While the response is more polarized by partisanship, voters who identify or are registered as independents hold at 59 percent yes. Similarly, a 55-percent majority of self-described moderate voters agree their senator should confirm President Trumps pick.

According to Dick Durbin, time to toss Red State Democrats out of office than let Kavanaugh be seated on the Supreme Court.
[toss Red State Democrats out of office]
First time I’ve agreed with SEN. DURBIN.
Heidi Heitkamp -- Do you stay or do you go?
The Dems are, as usual, just posturing for their low information voters. Chuckie knows this, and is just saying this stuff for media consumption because he is powerless to stop the nomination.
Most of these Rat Red State Senators will vote of confirm at the end of the day. Everything up to the vote is just theatre.
Ideally several Red state Senators will roll over and vote to confirm, and then get kicked to the curb in November anyway.
LOL. Trump has played this so we could easily get BOTH!
Just love it!
Before North Dakota became wealthy from oil money, that shtik was good enough to get elected because the mushy middle felt Democrats were more effective at bringing home pork to the state. I'm not so sure it works that well anymore.
They did even bother polling (or at least mentioning) Alabama. Is Doug Jones already a solid ‘no’? I assume he knows he’s toast in 2020 either way, so he probably doesn’t care.
Hope so! Down in the flood.
If the vote isn’t until the fall, the media and libs will have plenty of time to try to change that.
I’m sure Trump will fight back, which is why I love him.
When the Dems politicize the courts its the voters who run the show, not Chuck Schumer.
i thought schumer wanted the red state dem senators to fall on their sword.
Knowing the dems, they already have a set of high profile / large pay for little work jobs ready for the possible losers.
Trump making them walk the plank.....lol, best election eva!!
Red State dems vote for Kavanaugh and still get booted. That would be hilarious.
“Heidi Heitkamp — Do you stay or do you go?”
We need more votes for the eventual replacement for RBG!!!!
That is going to be a fight! a Dem Senator will NOT vote YES to a Conservative Justice to replace RBG!!!
